We’re looking for people with drive, enthusiasm and creativity to join us as we work differently and become more commercially and customer focused.
It’s a fantastic opportunity to work for a council that is changing and going places. Many people are attracted to the area because of its excellent location for the A1 and the East Coast Mainline (London is only an hour away), its quality relatively inexpensive housing and its high achieving schools.
The district has tremendous potential and we believe that by making fundamental changes to the way we do business we can help stimulate the economy, reduce costs and generate income for the council in future years.

The post holder will ensure the provision of timely and appropriate first stage and ongoing housing advice and assistance to prevent homelessness, working closely with the Homelessness Officers in doing so.
The applicant should have experience of providing a high quality, customer focussed service based around housing options / advice and homelessness prevention along with knowledge of homelessness legislation.
